Let's start with the good. The sunset view is impressive and the sweet tea was good (that's about it). Now the bad, service was very slow. We were seated right away, but service was very spotty.

The food was mediocre. For apps we had the Calamari and Shrimp Cocktail. The calamari was from a bag and the marinara sauce was cold. The Shrimp Cocktail was slimy and the shrimp was not good - that dish was sent back and taken off the bill (also 4 medium shrimp for $8?, really). One of my daughters a burger (frozen patty) which was way overcooked and didn't come with anything on it (pickles, onions, etc.). Other daughter had Fried Shrimp and Chowder which she liked. My wife had flounder and scallops which she said was just okay (but small for the price compared to other places on the island). I had the Shrimp Scampi which was almost seemed like an Alfredo given the amount of cheese they put on top.

Overall, it was a pretty disappointing meal. It seems like they might just crank out food for Blue Hairs (like the Sanitary Fish Market in MHC), without giving much thought to the taste.

I'd recommend going to Sears Landing for Seafood, they take pride in what they put on the plate.

We had a delicious meal at The Breezeway. Bacon wrapped scallops, blackened flounder and crab legs were all tasty. Hush puppies were filling and much sweeter than others that we have eaten. Neither of us really like cole slaw but it was good here, especially mixed with the flounder. Caught the last of the sunset from a window seat - nice view. We arrived at 7:30pm on a Saturday night and the restaurant was half full so no waiting. Service was good, restaurant was clean but dated. Prices were reasonable. We would eat here again.

Waited for almost an hour and still no service. Sad place to try to dine. People who came in after us had food and we did not even get drinks.

We LOVE the Breezeway Restaurant! The hushpuppies are terrific. The service is friendly, prompt, and unobtrusive. Make sure you get there early, or expect to wait. When we arrived, we asked for a seat near the window. Unfortunately, one wasn't available, so we sat at another table (could still see the water) and ordered our drinks. The hostess came up to us about 5 minutes after sitting down and offered to move us to a window seat that had just opened up! Quite unexpected.

The food is good; either fried or broiled southern seafood. It's not fancy, but it is good. We've been going to Topsail Island for about 25 years and always have a meal at the Breezeway.

Locals from Topsail Beach recommended this place so we checked it out. Unassuming from the outside but inside very clean, well kept, great friendly service and excellent food. We had the all you can eat crab legs. Hush puppies were sweet and delicious. Waitress was friendly and just the right amount attentive. We will definitely make this a regular stop when we visit the Island.
